Energy Savings Built In
The Visions 3500 Series offers a wide range of glass options designed to filter out
the sun’s heat in the summer and hold it in during the winter.
Two panes of glass with an insulating airspace can reduce your
energy bills while keeping your home comfortable in virtually any
climate. In addition, by adding optional Low E2 coatings, a window or
door unit’s energy efficiency can be improved, and help reduce fading
of furniture and carpets caused by damaging ultra-violet (UV) rays.
Airspace provides insulating power from summer heat
and winter cold. Adding safe, colorless argon gas to the
airspace increases the window’s energy efficiency.
Low E2 Coatings comes standard to help filter UV rays
and protect furnishings from fading while keeping your
home comfortable in the winter and summer extremes.
The Glass Spacer insulates the edge of the glass
